Re: Tracking The Big Transitional Tunes
"During all your years of listening here you have not figured out that the transitions between the songs are almost always included on the track of the preceeding song?
If youre skipping ahead to "I Know You Rider" you'd be missing the entire segue between the two songs.
There are some files here where individual jams are split into seperate tracks. One example is the Bertha/Ashley remaster of the '72 Rotterdam performance which unnecessarily splits the individual themes of that Dark Star into individual tracks.
I don't recall any examples where a transitional jam has been split. In fact it seems to me like a great deal of effort is made by most of the folks who create these remasters in order to split the tracks at the best possible moment."
Excellent post, Cliff....
Oh I know, sometimes that can be such a bitch re:chinarider. I can't think of how many recordings I've worked on where I change my mind 2 or 3 times as to where to start the new track for Rider. Similar problem sometimes with a Scarlet>Fire, but chinarider is really in a class of it's own. Other discrepencies are found when it comes to where to break Help and decide exactly where Slipknot begins. And in some cases, Supplication.
It's really a smart idea in the case of Chinarider to start the track right at the beginning of the jam after the last verse of Chinacat, to get right to the meat without having to do a lot of forwarding or rewinding. Or just leave it as one long track, you know you're going to listen to both of them anyway. I mean I wouldn't want the Charlie Miller's of the world doing it on releases, it's not a suggestion for the archive at large, more of a thing I would do for personal listening.
Sometimes I wish Truckin and Playin had new track starts after the vocals. 99% of the time when I play them I always skip past the first 4-5 minutes and the first 3:30ish, respectively.
